Elbow techniques are very effective if used correctly and we have several techniques such as Dolyochigi, Yeop chigi, dwi chigi, olyo chigi etc.
The elbow in Taekwondo is called Palkup (Korean) and it is not used in competition, and a fighter would get a warning or even disqualified if they use it in a competition.
Elbow can be used as an effective self defense in real situations. An elbow for example toward the head of the attacker can be successful to stop any harassment. 

In this video we would see the use of Palkup by grand master Lee Kwan Young, he is a 9th Dan in Taekwondo and the founder of Hosinmosool.
