If you can specify the resistance or impedance of your heat electrode, then you can determine what voltage you need to apply to dissipate 1.5kW. Most likely you can use triac control AC or cycle count burst control using a ZCS triac with suitable driver.

The power supply is very simple ( no transformer based) so all the circuit isn´t isolated, and for that reason i don't need an optotriac (reduces project costs).
There is another problem... the gate current must be over 50mA... for opto diac the command curent is reduced to 5-10mA. Your power source is enough to (...)

In the 1st and 3rd quadrants apply a "0" to the triac gate to turn it on and in the 2nd and 4th quadrants apply a "1" to turn it on.
It's not clear, which circuit you imagine, but I fear the suggestion is wrong. Most triacs can be triggered in all four quadrants, in other words, you can apply either a positive or a negative voltag

The temperature of the triac will be the same no matter what it's rating is. The maximum it can carry makes no difference to the power dissipation in the package and it's the dissipation that you see as a temperature rise. I think you need to be looking at a bigger heat sink.
