Commonly referred to as a three-phase full-wave rectifier.

Ah.  Thanks.  I figured it had to be called something.

If you had 600V on the cap, I'd be looking at at least double that for safe use.

Bad idea. You need to 'voltage share' to avoid avalanche breakdown with equal
value resistors across each diode of a value compatible with leakage current.
Use appropriately rated diodes instead as determined by running the generator
with a light resistive load.

That's probably your only problem.
