In this paper, we propose a variational method to derive the coefficients of piecewise-linear (PWL) models able to accurately approximate nonlinear functions, which are vector fields of autonomous dynamical systems described by continuous-time state-space models dependent on parameters. Such dynamical systems admit limit cycles, and the supercritical Hopf bifurcation normal form is chosen as an example of a system to be approximated. The robustness of the approximations is checked, with a view to circuit implementations.
