Tvs are very prone to failure when any interference gets on the power-line even through a surge protector\transient protector, it should ordinarily be OK so long as the power from your main source shuts down there is a delay of a minute and then the generator kicks in and so long as the supplied voltage is stable then you should not have an issue.
