You can really do one of two things. The first would be to report about the generator but in this case you would have to know what you are doing, or at least the general principle behind them and how they operate.
Two would be to exclude it as beyond the scope of a home inspection and refer a specialist to evaluate the condition and instruct the client to the operation and maintenance requirements for the generator.
Either way you must decide if you are going to include them in your home inspection. As a general rule I don't think many home inspector do include them in the home inspection and I would venture to say that most charge extra if they do.
Hope this helps!
