This one I am not so sure about.
In Figure 3.26: Three-phase AC and 3-phase full-wave rectifier output, the "Resultant DC waveform diagram" curve is the maximum voltage of the three rectified phases.
Should it be the sum of the voltages of the three rectified phases instead? If not, then maybe some explanation at this point as to why not.

I can see that the three phases are not lined up. But they overlap. What causes the power supplying "switch" from one phase to the other?

The rotation of the generator. If you find a mistake in the textbook, this is the forum to use.

If you have a question of concept, you should post on electronic chat forum.
