9K Northern Lights gen. voltage fluctuating

Can someone help suggest reasons why our Northern Lights generator's voltage output is fluctuation? The needle on the meter is fluttering back and fourth and appliance lights flicker. This goes on for about 15 minutes than all seems back to normal with the meter needle steady.
