This article outlines a method for stabilising the current continuity equations which are used for semiconductor device simulation. Residual-free bubble functions (RfBF) are incorporated into a finite element (FE) implementation that are able to prevent oscillations which are seen when using the conventional Bubnov-Galerkin FE implementation. In addition, it is shown that the RfBF are able to provide stabilisation with very distorted meshes and curved interface boundaries. Comparison with the commonly used SUPG scheme is made throughout, showing that in the case of 2D problems the RfBF allow faster convergence of the coupled semiconductor device equations, especially in the case of distorted meshes.
