choosing the proper Optimization Algorithm based on nvars

Hi everyone,
I have some case studies regarding to Wind Farm Layout Optimization,
the number of turbines may be a few hundreds,
for every turbine I want to optimize its X,Y locations as well as its height,
so, the number of variables may reach 1,000 wow !!!
right now, I am using GA for smaller number of turbines (few tens of variables), but the results didn't give the optimum solution (I know the optimum solution for some cases) ...

my questions are:
1- do you see GA is capable to handle a large number of variables ?
2- If YES, how do I adapt the solver settings to capture the global minimum ?
3- If NO, what Optimization algorithm(s) do you suggest for my problem ?

thank you for reading,
Best Regards to ALL,
Mamdouh
