## Abstract

A method of droplet generation based on applying a modulated AC high frequency magnetic field in the localized region of capillary breakup is considered as ans alternative to traditional methods for high temperature liquid melt droplet serial production by pressure variation. The method is based on a pseudo-spectral approximation with a coordinate transformation adaptin to the developing free surface. The electromagnetic field is recomputed continuously with the domain shape change. Practical application cases for liquid silicon droplets of 0.5 - 2 mm diameter are considered in detail.
