New function for representing electrostatic discharge (ESD) currents according to the IEC 61000-4-2 Standard current is proposed in this paper. Good agreement with the Standard defined parameters is obtained. This function is compared to other functions from literature. Its first derivative needed for field calculations is analyzed in the paper. Main advantages are simplified choice of parameters, possibility to obtain discontinuities in the decaying part, and zero value of the function first
