As well as Tideman CPO-STV see also Sequential STV  I D Hill & S Gazeley, 
paper 4 Voting Matters 15 at the Electoral Reform Society website


This paper sets out a solution to the 'eliminate the lowest'  problem of STV 
and attempts to identify the set of n candidates to fill n seats unbeatable by 
any other candidate. 

In the one seat situation this method always selects the Condorcet winner.

Theoretical examples ( highly unlikely in practice) can be produced in which 
this method gives very bad results.
