A set of self-consistent thermodynamic model parameters is presented to describe the phase equilibria of the Ag-Pd, Co-Pd, Fe-Pd, and Ni-Pd systems. In most cases, the calculated values using the optimized model parameters agree very well with the experimental data. The FePd and FePd3 phases with large homogeneity ranges are described by the compound energy formalism. At present, insufficient thermodynamic data are available for these two phases. Therefore, experimental data on the heat of formation and/or the first-principle calculation of cohesive energies will be very useful for further refinement of thermodynamic parameters of FePd and FePd3 phases.
