Hi Andrea,

yes, you can do a non transport calculation with the real space Poisson 
solver, I did the same for the same reason. Whether you can simulate 
your system or not, however, may depend on the boundary conditions you 
want to impose. For example, all periodic does not work if I remember 
right, but for a 1D system you should be able to set up a well defined
