We present an extended hydrodynamic model describing the transport of electrons in the axial direction of a silicon nanowire. This model has been formulated by closing the moment system derived from the Boltzmann equation on the basis of the maximum entropy principle of Extended Thermodynamics, coupled to the Schr¨odinger-Poisson system. Explicit closure relations for the high-order fluxes and the production terms are obtained without any fitting procedure, including scattering of electrons with acoustic and non polar optical phonons. We derive, using this model, the electron mobility.
