Magnetic circuit in MCCB should be reliable as Reliability is the main concern if MCCB used as the protection to the main appliances. Air-gap plays critical role in any magnetic system as increase and decrease in it will cause shift in saturation level. In this paper we are going to see the effect of air-gap variation in case of triangular air-gap. Here, Ansys software is used for magneto static analysis of the magnetic system. Relation between analytic formulation and ansys data is given by variation factor, which is used to establish force in given triangular system by just mathematical formulation. This paper will help in driving force for any triangulate air-gap system and relation between system and simulating software. Formulation of force generation is very important at design point of view as it will help in analyzing required force generation.
