Charge GC, quadrupole GQ and magnetic GM deuteron form factor were calculated by analytic forms of the deuteron wave function in the coordinate space for nucleon-nucleon potentials NijmI, NijmII, Nijm93, Reid93 and Argonne v18. Theoretical calculations are compared with the experimental data from the leading collaborations (Bates, BLAST, Bonn, JLab, Mainz, Naval Research Lab, NIKHEF, Orsay, Saclay, SLAC, Stanford, VEPP3, VEPP4) and reviews (Abbott, Boden, Garcon, Karpius). The obtained position of the zero for the deuteron form factors for these five potentials was compared with the values for other potential models and experimental values. Further use of form factors for obtaining polarization observables is discussed.
