the high and low sides of the transformers...
Explanation:
Here, "high" and "low" refer to the voltages coming into and leaving the transformer (whose function is to convert high-voltage electrical current to low-voltage current -- for example, for distribution from the main electrical power grid to individual municipal areas, for use in homes and businesses).

In full: "Parameters: Status of the switches on the high and low sides of the transformers."

the high and low voltage sides of the transformer


Explanation:
Hi,

I agree with Heathcliff although I'd put the voltage part in.

Refer to web sites:
http://www.usda.gov/rus/electric/regs/1710.htm
http://www.darrahelectric.com/dc_features.htm


You can also use tension instead of voltage. Refer to web site:
http://engineer.terrashare.com/aps/p/101.html

high- or low-tension side

The hyphens are not mandatory but can be used if you prefer.

Good luck!
