plane waves form an orthonormal basis set.

whether this defines a generalized eigenvalue problem or not depends on 
what you use planewaves for.
If they expand the full vawefunction (as in norm-conserving PP) you have 
a normal eigenvalue problem ,
if you expand the pseudo part of a wfc that needs to be augmented to 
reconstruct the charge density (USPP or PAW) a generalized eigenvalue 
problem results.
