Abstract:

An attempt is made to give a theoretical description of the interaction of plasmoids with external magnetic fields, considering the plasma nature of the plasmoid, its finite dimensions, and geometry. Equations of longitudinal motion, transverse compression and rotational motion are presented self-induction of the plasmoid and its conductance are calculated questions of the interaction of plasmoids with fields of corklike configuration are discussed, as well as behavior of magnetic moment of the plasmoid. Conditions were found with which it is possible to use a model of flexible current winding. In the second part are studied conditions of plasmoid repulsion from the magnetic field and conditions of plasmoid capture equations recorded are of stability for inductive plasmoid with general equations for its self-induction, the interaction of long plasmoids with external fields and collision of plasmoids.
