What is the basis for a "reversible heat engine"? I know that it is theoretical and can't exist. But even mathematically it doesn't seem to be possible. Specifically, a reversible heat engine needs two temperature bodies to operate. Any heat transfer would automatically result in entropy generation (dS=dQ/T). Any kind of heat transfer from the high temperature body would result in entropy generation, which makes the process irreversible?
