Abstract: Two relaxation limits of the hydrodynamic model for semiconductors are investigated. Using the compensated compactness tools we show the convergence of (scaled) entropy solutions of the hydrodynamic model to the solutions of the energy transport and the drift-diffusion equations, according respectively to different time scales.
