A system and method are provided for controlling an electrosurgical generator generating electrosurgical energy which is delivered to a patient for performing an electrosurgical procedure for sealing tissue. The system includes a control module executable on a processor for receiving sensed data corresponding to at least one physical or electrical property related to delivery of the electrosurgical energy. The control module processes the received sensed data and controls the electrosurgical generator including generating at least one corresponding control signal in accordance with the processed sensed data for regulating electrosurgical energy output from the electrosurgical generator. The controlling the electrosurgical generator further includes regulating at least one control variable, a respective control variable of the at least one control variable corresponding to sensed data corresponding to a property of the at least one physical or electrical property to follow at least one mapping for optimizing the tissue sealing.
