When and why do I need to use a bridge rectifier if my PMG is putting out DC?
Well, are you sure it's putting out DC? Tell us about your PMG. Over the years, the names have gotten a bit mixed up. Today, calling something a PMG is just another name for a PMA (or permanent magnet alternator), so you should make sure you indeed have a DC generator.
If it is a DC generator, then you obviously don't need a rectifier.
Separate names with a comma.
