This work reports the results of the experimental studies of magnetocaloric effect (MCE) in Ni2.16Mn0.84Ga Heusler alloy with separate magnetic and structural phase transitions in adiabatic (∆T) and quasi isothermal (∆Q) regimes by direct methods in magnetic fields up to 10 T. The data obtained allow for comparing ∆T and ∆Q values in the vicinity of martensitic transition and Curie point. It is found maximal values of ∆T = 4,7 K at T = 311 K and ∆Q = 4,6 kJ/kg at T = 313 K in the fields H = 10 T. Optical observations of martensitic twins structure origin and evolution under the influence of high magnetic field confirm the reversible magnetic-field-induced martensitic transition at constant temperature T = 313 K in the field 14 T.
