A rotating magnetic field (RMF) Ф12 model was developed in consideration of the skin effect. The rotating magnetic field’s induced three-dimensional flow was simulated numerically, and the influence of the skin effect was investigated. The rotating magnetic field drives the rotating convection in the azimuthal direction, and a secondary convection appears in the radial-meridional direction. The results indicate that ignoring the skin effect results in a smaller azimuthal velocity component and larger radial and axial velocity components, and that the deviation becomes more obvious with the larger dimensionless shielding parameter K.
