Setting up a Generator to Motor circuit. SOLVED

Hi All - First time poster question around an electronic circuit set up and the correct components to use. Being new to anything of this sort I need some help from more knowledgeable minds. I want to use a very small magnet generator I have to set up a drive source for a small 12 Volt BLDC motor. Other than advice - Parts in circuit that I think I need are: Generator 3 Phase 12v-24v AC 3 Phase Rectifier to DC output_ Capacitor_ Switch_ Magnetic RPM LED counter_ Voltage Regulator_ 12 Volt LOW RPM Brush-less DC motor

My Questions are: My main unknown is around the switching from 3 phase AC 3a-5a Max 100w being rectified to DC power. I can't seem to find a definitive answer as to the correct type and size of bridge rectifier I should use.

Along with this I am having problems with finding a good seller of this sort of component - I am in Australia.

can you guys help me with this please!

You sure are choosing a complicated way to drive a motor. It would help a lot if you could simply describe what you wish to do and what your thinking is to do it. In the meantime take a look at: it gives the basics of a 3 phase supply driving a 3 phase rectifier to feed a dc load. Lotsa luck
