Numerical calculation by Monte Carlo method of the dynamic behaviour of electron ensemble in n-type InSb crystals after step-like application of electric field is presented. The results show essential influence of electron density on the energy relaxation time. The effect of electron energy cooling below equilibrium temperature in compensated n-InSb is obtained numerically for the first time, which is in agreement with experimental results.
