Optimizing a wind farm layout is a very complex problem that involves many local and global constraints such as inter- turbine wind interference or terrain peculiarities. Existing methods are either inefficient or, when efficient, take days or weeks to execute. Solutions are contextually sensitive to the specific values of the problem variables; when one value is modified, the algorithm has to be re-run from scratch. This paper proposes the use of a developmental model to generate farm layouts. Controlled by a gene regulatory net- work, virtual cells have to populate a simulated environment that represents the wind farm. When the cells' behavior is learned, this approach has the advantage that it is re-usable in different contexts; the same initial cell is responsive to a variety of environments and the layout generation takes few minutes instead of days.
