Motivated by some models arising in quantum plasma dynamics, in this paper we study the Maxwell–Schrödinger system with a power-type nonlinearity. We show the local well-posedness in $H^2 (\mathbb{R}^3) \times H^{3/2} (\mathbb{R}^3)$ and the global existence of finite energy weak solutions, these results are then applied to the analysis of finite energy weak solutions for Quantum Magnetohydrodynamic systems.
