Some generators have Lenze cogging when the coils are shorted, and some may have ferro type cogging even when they are not under load, to me that sounds like double trouble. Generators can at least just avoid the ferro cogging even though they have powerful magnets and steel or iron, that much is just in the design.

A few small steps can tip the scales.

Edit I forgot to mention about using dc motors as the prime mover. 'when the output of the captured power from the collapsing magnetic field is captured, tuning the circuit for maximum impedance matching does make a big difference. Can be done quite easily with off the shelf motors.
