please add more information on what the application is related to.
generally speaking evaporator suppliers will dictate defrost heater loads per evaporator for the application.
Basically if you add heat for defrost you need to remove it, then there is the general heat load ,a safety factor and off cycle time and defrost governs compressor/refrigeration loads.
From where ever use a heat calculation program for the applcation, remember rubbish inputs equals rubbish out puts so be careful how you apply data.
If you are not familiar with process refer all information to reputable equipment supplier for assistance
