Just curious if this is possible. I also know this is very simplistic.

Say I have an AC generator that outputs 24V. I have three separate devices that each require a different, increased voltage to operate. Can I put three separate step-up transformers in parallel, each stepping up different voltages?

I drew this diagram to help explain what I mean. The "G" is the generator, "T" is the transformer, and "D" is the device.

Yes it can be done, however it may be more economic to use a single autotransformer with multiple taps.

It will work fine -- this is basically the way all systems in your house are connected -- the primaries of the individual transformers are in parallel (i.e. plugged into the mains), and the secondaries are all separate.
