  Space-charge effects have been identified as the most serious intensity limitation in the CERN PS and PS booster, on the way towards ultimate LHC performance and beyond. We here explore the application of several previously proposed space-compensation methods to the two LHC pre-injector rings, for each scheme discussing its potential benefit, ease of implementation, beam-dynamics risk, and the R&D programme required. The methods considered include tune shift and resonance compensation via octupoles, nonlinear chromaticity, or electron lenses, and beam neutralization by an electron cloud, plasma or negative ions.
