The load schedule shows the 35kw spread across the three phases I.e. 11.66kw per phase. I think this is incorrect as I would put it as 35kw per phase. Can anyone tell me which is the correct method and possibly back it up with some maths. Your help would be much appreciated.

Since we are considering balanced systems, the total power is three times the power in one phase. P = P_1 = P_2 = P_3 = V_L I_P cosθ (Power Factor) Therefore, the total active power P_total dissipated in a three-phase circuit is equal to: P_total = 3 x P = 3V_L I_P cosθ (PF) Hence P = P_total/3 P = 35/3 = 11.67 kW Introduction to AC Circuits
