This paper describes the traction equipment of the electrical motive units (EMUs) of Gauge Changing Train (GCT). These state-of-the-art EMUs are equipped with downsized direct drive type permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSMs) for traction to run at five supply voltages in Japan, including Shinkansen and conventional narrow-gauge lines. The paper also illustrates the test results of operation on Shinkansen and conventional narrow-gauge lines and on a gauge-changing section that connects different gauge lines.
