This paper introduces a new technique to solve financial allocation in Distribution System Expansion Planning (DSEP) problem. The proposed technique will be formulated by using mean-variance analysis (MVA) approach in the form of mixed-integer programming (MIP) problem. It consist the hybridization of Hopfield Neural Network (HNN) and Boltzmann Machine (BM) in first and second phase respectively. During the execution at the first phase, this model will select the feasible units meanwhile the second phase will restructured until it finds the best solution from all the feasible solution. Due to this feature, the proposed model has a fast convergence and the accuracy of the obtained solution. This model can help planners in decision-making process since the solutions provide a better allocation of limited financial resources and offer the planners with the flexibility to apply different options to increase the profit.
