I created it like this, but I want to make it save a new text file every second. After that, I intend to load the results into MATLAB and plot the graph. How can I achieve this?

Just give a new name for every new file, something like this and append to base path by Build Path:

Thank you, sir!

Although it is functioning, there is an issue where only one file is being generated. How can I resolve this?

If you probe the wire going to the file write loop i'll bet it only has 1 element. Also, if the outer loop spins you'll start from 0 each time overwriting it. Maybe you want to name if after the timestamp?

Use the CreateFileWithIncrementingSuffix function to create unique filenames!
