Three-dimensional time-dependent flow of silicon melt in an electromagnetic Czochralski system was numerically investigated. Four different positions of electrodes were taken into account to investigate the mechanism of heat and oxygen transfer in the melt under cusp-shaped magnetic fields. The results showed that the position of electrode plays an important role to control heat and oxygen transfer in silicon melt.
