German translation:Dauerlaststrom, Dauerdurchlaßstrom
Explanation:
This terms crops up, in relation of performance specs of solid state devices. "On current" could also be stated as load current or forward current, which in specs often gets compared to reverse or leakage current (Sperrstrom).

Explanation:
(if it's "direct current")

Explanation:
A bit of context would have been nice...

Since the word "current" appears in your query, I'm assuming that the overall context has to do with power/electricity.
Found 2 terms that match your query closely, although not exactly:
continuous current = Dauerstrom (Budig, WB Elektrotechnik & Elektronik and Siemens, Energie- & Automatisierungstechnik)

Continuous direct on-state current = Dauergleichstrom (Siemens)

Maybe this will help.
