Hydrodynamical simulations are very efficient tools to study the internal structure of stars but the wide range of time and length scales that characterize it makes it difficult to model. To cope this difficulty a common practice when modelling stellar convection is to artificially increase luminosity and thermal diffusivity by several order of magnitude. The reasons for using this artefact is  for numerical stability and/or for achieving thermal relaxation

We perform fully compressible 2D simulations of solar-like models using the numerical time-implicit code MUSIC. This work focuses on the impact such a practice could have on physical process like convective penetration and internal gravity waves. To do so we compare solar-like models with different enhancement factors for the luminosity and thermal diffusivity.
