    Hello,

    I would take 1.5 to 2 times the applied voltage for the capacitors.
    The input voltage of the regulators a voltage of 24 Volts is stated, a 35 - 40 Volts capacitor will do there.
    So in the 12 Volts circuits I would use 18 volts, they do not exist so I would use 25 Volts to be safe.
    As for the high voltage caps near the bridge, they will get about 380 Volts on them, so I would use 600 volts caps.
