Resent observations suggest that, during solar flares, plasmoids are injected into the interplanetary medium (Stewart et al., 1982). It has also been pointed out that solar wind irregularities modeled as plasmoids are penetrated into the magnetosphere (Lemaire, 1977). These plasmoid injections are considered to be an important process because they transfer mass, momentum, and energy into such magnetized plasma regions. Our objective is to investigate the dynamics of a plasmoid, which is injected into a magnetized plasma region and to reveal mechanisms to transfer them. To achieve this, we carried out three-dimensional magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) simulations.
