Yes indeedy, it works quite nicely... I've run a variety of HV equipment
off generators all the way from a little 700W putt-putt, to a 5 kW Honda,
to the multi 100 kW generators used on movie sets.
The tricky part might be if you wanted to run a sync rotary gap, because
the smaller generators, in particular, tend to have significant speed
variations as the load changes.
