Referring to the satellite transmit downlink coverage pattern, the saturated EIRP on each contour will be specified in units of dBW.  For example +45 dBW in the area of the beam centre and +42 dBW at the -3 dB contour. The figures given refers to a whole transponder. Note the bandwidth, for example, 36 MHz.

This image shows four EIRP contour levels each with saturated dBW for the downlink.
( The dBK figures refer to the uplink G/T. )

If a transponder is operated with a single carrier the carrier power will be adjusted to the saturated power, or perhaps -0.5dB to -1 dB lower to minimise distortion and make advanced modulation methods such as 8QAM, 16QAM and 32APSK work better.

For multi-carrier operation you might conservatively assume a multi-carrier transponder operating point of -10dB input back off and -4.5dB output back off, the operating downlink EIRP, on the -3 dB contour will be +45 -3 -4.5 = +37.5 dBW.   This refers to the whole transponder output power and is the aggregate of all the multiple small carriers present.

Some satellite transponders have superior output power amplifiers and/or linearisers which enable multi-carrier operation nearer to saturation as the -4.5dB output back off mentioned above represents a serious loss of power. Ask the satellite operator for a graph of input and output backoff with the carrier/intermod ratio also shown. The satellite operator will normally decide for themselves what transponder back offs are to be used when there are multiple customers, each renting some fraction of the transponder.

For a leased 2 MHz slot, out of a transponder bandwidth of 36 MHz, the available downlink EIRP will be +37.5 -10 log(36/2) = +25 dBW .   This assumes that the total power is more or less evenly divided according to bandwidth.  In practice you can buy more power if you need a high power spectral density carrier, but on average other people will have to have lower power per unit bandwidth to keep the total operating point under control.
