Equivariant ordinary differential cohomology or equivariant Deligne cohomology is the equivariant cohomology-enhancement of ordinary differential cohomology (Deligne cohomology), equivalently the differential cohomology-enhancement of ordinary equivariant cohomology.
There is one evident general abstract definition of what this means concretely: Given a $G$-action on some $X$, the (Borel-)$G$-equivariant ordinary differential cohomology of $X$ in degree $n$ is the (∞,1)-categorical hom-space in the cohesive (∞,1)-topos of Smooth∞Groupoids from the quotient stack $X \sslash G$ to the Deligne complex $\mathbf{B}^n U(1)_{conn}$.
That various definitions in the literature coincide with this one (in particular Kübel-Thom 15, and for finite groups also Lupercio-Uribe 01, Gomi 05) is discussed in (Park-Redden 19).
