We carried out relativistic force free simulations and Particle In Cell (PIC) simulations of twist injection into the magnetic arcades emerging on the surface of a magnetar. As the magnetic energy is accumulated in the arcades, they expand self-similarly. In the arcades, a current sheet is formed and magnetic reconnection takes place. We also carried out 2-dimensional PIC simulations for the study of particle acceleration through magnetic reconnection. As a result, the energy spectrum of particles can be fitted by a power-law.
