Hi. I'm making a 3 phase furnace with heating coils. Total power rating is 5 KW. I have to make one heating element for each phase. How do I split the KW rating? Will it be a straight 5/3? Also when calculating the resistance for each heater, should I calculate based on 220V(single phase voltage in India) or 440V (3 phase voltage)?

Are the elements connected in star or delta configuration?
