How does the new generation of "quiet" inverter generator work?

Recommended Posts

I saw some "high end" portable generator using inverters to produce the AC (Honda has the EU1000i
http://www.hondapowerequipment.com/ModelDetail.asp?ModelName=eu1000i). 

For these type of generators, I presume they will have a DC generator.
a) What is the nominal DC voltage?

b) How does the throttle control mechanism work?

c) Is it a good assumption that if I tap the DC directly but leave the AC inverter intact, the throttle and control mechanisms will still work if there is a varying DC load?  I'm assuming that to keep a constant 110 vac, the nominal vdc must also be relatively consistent.
