Is it real to simulate Full Lightning Impulse 1,2/50 us in Comsol 4.0?

I simulate electric fields in high-voltage switchgear.
In my models I use AC/DC Module Electrostatics (es).
If the electrode is under high potential, the boundary condition for that electrode will be Electric Potential with fixed Voltage value.
So, as a result, I get the static electric field distribution.
My aim is to simulate the influence of time dependent voltage namely Full Lightening Impulse 1,2/50 us.
It has form shown on the fig. 1 in following document:
The duration of impulse is 50*10e-6 s. As you see it is very short.
So, here is the question.
How can I simulate the model with such time dependent voltage applied to the electrode?
