A controller is disclosed for hybrid systems providing power to an electrical power grid. The controller reduces wear on hybrid systems by having only a fast unit tuned to track fluctuations of a regulation signal in a normal mode of operation. By contrast, the slow unit does not track fluctuations in the regulation signal in the normal mode of operation, which reduces wear on the slow unit. The normal mode of operation is defined by an energy range of the fast unit. Energy band parameters associated with the energy range can be dynamically modified in order to optimize the efficiency of the hybrid system.
