Abstract The period variations of TV Cassiopeiae between 1901 and 1977 are discussed in the light of the period change model proposed by Biermann and Hall. During each period decrease 4.0 x 10¯⁶M☉ of mass is transferred from the secondary star to the primary. The average observable mass transfer rate is found to be 4.3 x 10¯⁷M☉ yr¯¹. This average rate corresponds to the thermal time-scale of the mass-losing star.
