These are the equations:
function [fval]= ptfunc(X)
Tcell=X(1);
Pcell=X(2);
Qh=X(3);
Pteg=X(4);
alpha = 0.95;
A = (0.04)^2;
epsilon = 0.88;
sigma = 5.69*10^(-8);
Ta = 298.15;
u=(0.003+1/5)^-(1);
ns = 0.10;
theta = 0.0011;
An=6.4*10^-7;
Hn=0.01;%:0.01:0.06;
N=62;
S=185*10^-6;
rho=10^-5;
den=2*rho;
k=1.5;
Z=(S^2)/(rho.*k);
Tc=298;
r=0.2;
n=0.0001;
hc=0.00009;
num2=2*r*hc;
G=500;
fval(1,1)= -Qh+ alpha*G*A-u*A*(Tcell-Ta)-epsilon*sigma*A*((Tcell.^4)-(Ta^4))-Pcell;
fval(2,1)= -Pcell+ alpha*G*A*ns.*(1-theta.*(Tcell - 298));
fval(3,1)= -Qh + (k*An*N/Hn)*(1-Z*(3*Tcell+Tc)/8)*(Tcell-Tc);
fval(4,1)= -Pteg+(S^2)*An*N*((Tcell-Tc)^2)./(den.*(n+Hn).*(1+num2./Hn).^2);
I need to plot the varaibles with respect to G. How do I do that?

G is a scalar - its value is 500 - so you would plot 4 single points - one for each result from fsolve. Is this what you want to do?
Yavar Hayat on 9 Apr 2019
No. I want to the values of G so as to plot the four variables accordglingly.

function main
G = linspace(250,750).';
X0 = [1,1,1,1];
for i=1:numel(G)
sol = fsolve(@(X)ptfunc(X,G(i)),X0);
x(i,:) = sol;
X0 = sol;
end
plot(G,x(:,1))
end
function fval = ptfunc(X,G)
Tcell=X(1);
Pcell=X(2);
Qh=X(3);
Pteg=X(4);
alpha = 0.95;
A = (0.04)^2;
epsilon = 0.88;
sigma = 5.69*10^(-8);
Ta = 298.15;

plot(G,x)
plot(G,x(:,1))
Walter Roberson on 10 Apr 2019
However, it is working. The reason it does not look like it is working is that one of the results is on the order of 300, and two of them are on the order of 0.1, and the last of them is on the order of 0.01 . You simply cannot see anything in 3 of the 4 lines because they are insignificant on the scale of the first plot.
You could use subplot() to break the values out.
If you have a new enough MATLAB you could use stackedplot()

I got it by using
plot(G,x(:,1))
plot(G,x(:,2))
etc.
Thank you.
