A hybrid power system (1 ) is disclosed. The system comprises a plurality of dispatchable power resources (7.i; 7.j) and a first controller (12) for controlling the dispatchable power resources. The system further comprises a power resource section (5) responsive to environment conditions and a second controller (17) for controlling the power resource* section (5) responsive to environment conditions. The second controller (17) is configured and arranged for measuring a total power (∑Pgenset) generated by the plurality of dispatchable power resources (7.i; 7,j) and a total power (∑PPV) generated by the power resource section (5) responsive to environment conditions; and for generating a power curtailment signal (PVcurtailment), when required, for reducing the total power (ΣΡPV) generated by the power resource section (5) responsive to environment conditions.
