Please, check the calculation of maximum solar cell effective area. I think there is something wrong. You calculate with hexagon side length = 1, but it should be SQRT(3)/2 in my opinion. The diameter of hexagon is equal to cubesat diagonal (SQRT(3)), then the side of hexagon is SQRT(3)/2. It lead to much smaller effective area and also to lower maximum power from solar cells.
