  abstract     = {{In the context of the LHC Injectors Upgrade Project (LIU), the Proton Synchrotron Booster (PSB) developed an H⁻ charge exchange injection system. The four short rectangular dipoles of the injection chicane induce focusing errors through edge focusing and Eddy currents. These errors excite the half-integer resonance 2Qy = 9 and cause a dynamically changing beta-beating in the first milliseconds after injection. Using the beta-beating at the positions of two individually powered quadrupoles, measured with k-modulation, correction functions based on a model response matrix have been calculated and applied. Minimizing the beta-beating at injection allows the machine to be operated with betatron tunes closer to the half-integer resonance and therefore with larger space charge tune spreads. In this contribution the results of the beta-beating compensation studies and the impact on the achievable beam brightness limit of the machine are presented.}},
