Abstract. We consider the electronic gas in a virtual conductor which is described in terms of a modified Drude model. The attractiveness of this model has been rediscovered in the computer era when it has been recognized that a dynamics of the electrons can be efficiently implemented enabling us to carry out simulation experiments.

Nonparametric statistical tools for the evaluation of the experiments are introduced and motivated by consistency results.

It turns out that the thermal voltage in a virtual nanoconductor can be surprisingly high. Based on the statistical evaluation we propose the stationary Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process for the description of the thermal voltage as function of time; estimates of the parameters of the process are reported and discussed.
