Spanish term or phrase: lado de alta
Electricity generation plants:

"los puntos de medida se establecen en el lado de alta del transformador principal de cada grupo, en el lado de alta de cada una de las tomas de alimentación de auxiliares que existan en la central y en el lado de alta de cada una de las entregas al exterior desde las barras de auxiliares"

"lado de alta" = perhaps "upstream side" or "high-voltage side" (of the transformer). Anyone knows?

English translation:"HIGH VOLTAGE SIDE"
Explanation:
As its name indicates, a transformer is a device designed for stepping voltage up or down so, you feed high voltage on one side of the windings and get low voltage at the other end, and vice versa.

I have been trained at EEC, UK, and ASEA, Sweeden, and that is the term we used all the time. I have also worked in the erection, commissioning and repair of power plants in my home country. Hope this helps. Good luck!

High side, or top


Explanation:
It would depend on what type of measurement "medida" refers to, which presumably were mentioned just before the extract.

If it means voltage then it could mean the primary coil of a step-down transformer etc, but that all depends on the context.
