  The LHC High-luminosity project requests high brightness and intensity beams from the CERN Proton Synchrotron (PS). The generation of such beams is limited due to resonance effects at injection. The impact of resonances can be minimized by performing appropriate correction with dedicated magnets and by optimizing the tune working point. Currently the tune working point at injection is naturally set by the quadrupolar component generated by the one hundred combined function normal conducting magnets installed in the PS, and slightly corrected by low energy quadrupole magnets. In this paper, a study is presented exploiting the use of the available five auxiliary individually powered circuits to adjust the quadrupolar and higher-order multipole components for changing the tune integer at injection. Due to the non-linear contribution of each circuit to the magnetic field distribution a finite-element magnetic model was prepared to predict the required currents in the auxiliary coils. The magnetic model was benchmarked with magnetic measurements and then tested in the PS machine during dedicated machine development times.
