energy in sonicFoam

i posted my problem yesterday here, but i got no reply so i post it here, again. I hope someone can help cause my time is running and i have to understand the sonicFoam solver.
here is my problem again:
I think I understand most of sonicFoam. It's a solver with PISO loop for the compressible Navier-Stokes equations. But one think is absolutely not clear:
if i set mu=0 in sonicFoam it solves the Euler Equations for a compressible, inviscid, perfect gas. (thats what i want to simulate)
But there is a little difference to the standart equations. sonicFoam just looks at the inner energy e=T*Cv (just thermal energy). The Euler Equations (and also the Navier-Stokes) work with the energy e=T*Cv+1/2*mag(v)^2 (thermal energy + kinetic energy).
why can the kinetic energy be ignored? And why is the the solver still consisten to the Euler-/Navier-Stokes Equations?
Today i made some tests with sonicFoam and rhoSonicfoam. If i use rhoSonicfoam without kinetic energy the solution becomes wrong. And if i put kinetic energy to sonicFoam the solution becomes wrong, too.
For both solvers the energy hast to be, as it is.
So i think there is a kinetic energy in sonicFoam, but i can't find the term for it.
pls help me,
ps: i post it in the "solving" forum, because for me it's a problem of consistens of a solver.
