As long as the panels and alternator are electrically seperated (diodes, switch or similar) AND the input is within the limits of the controller I see no issues.
But it comes down to your knowledge and understanding of the electrical side....

Short answer yes/ no /maybe.

Long answer, If the Magneto is off a motor bike, rated at 12 volts, less than 30 amps, and has a DC output, and you know what your doing then yes you can.

If the alternator is off a car it will not work with out the battery and regulator, so no.

So.... maybe....
